Buying a Home

Helping home buyers understand the process from start to close is critical.

Whether you are buying your very y first home or you are a seasoned home buyer I will be there to assist you through the process. Buying a home is an involved process and requires the guidance of a trained professional. The buying process for most people can seem overwhelming, when you have the right team on your side the process is smooth and painless.

The first step is the all-important pre-approval from a bank or mortgage company. This shows home sellers that you are serious and ready to purchase a home. It is the first tool necessary in the purchase process. If you do not have a preferred lender I can steer you in the right direction. Just ask!!I am here to help.

After your offer has been accepted the next step is hiring a qualified home and radon inspector to inspect the home and test for possible radon gas. I can recommend home inspectors and companies that test for radon to work with us. It is important to pick a quality home inspector to inspect your home. A thorough home inspection by a reputable company could cover hundreds of items both inside and outside of the house including:

  • Foundation
  • Exterior
  • Walls
  • Roof
  • Attic
  • Basement
  • Kitchen
  • Bathrooms
  • Windows
  • Insulation
  • Air and heating system
  • Interior
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing

 

A reputable Real Estate Attorney is recommended to ensure a smooth closing. I have recommendations for this service as well.

The timeline from start to finish is between 30 and 45 days depending on the type of loan you have.
